The agency provides services for older adults, age 50 to 55 and older, who live in the city of Carson.

The case management staff can assess a senior's needs; provide crisis intervention and counseling; coordinate needed services; support care providers; act as an advocate for the senior; and provide information and assistance with needs like out-of-home placement, in-home supportive care, government benefits, and community resources.

Any senior who is isolated and unable to leave home may apply for regular telephone contact.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome to assist in the senior programs. The services volunteers may be trained to provide tax preparation, telephone reassurance, friendly visiting, and escort assistance. Senior volunteers also may serve on the Senior Advisory Council which makes recommendations about the delivery of services at the agency.

The in-home supportive geriatric aide service is only available for people who receive case management services and have an assessed need.
